Germany won’t sign ACTA…for now

Today, news media report that Germany is postponing the signing, not to mention the ratification of ACTA. This is good news. As more countries are wavering in their support for ACTA, the future of this agreement becomes less and less secure. That is something to be happy about, but it is no time to relax yet! Now is the time to double our efforts, to convince more and more people that ACTA is bad for us and for the development of business in Europe. Tomorrow is a day of protest against ACTA all across Europe. Let’s hope that we can add a few more countries to the list!

  • Poland
  • Slovenia
  • Slovakia
  • Czech republic
  • Latvia
  • And now: Germany!

Notice something? Yes, they are almost all countries in Eastern Europe. The people there still remember clearly what it is like to be oppressed and have freedom trodden upon. I guess here in the west, we have begun to take our freedom for granted.

In other news, the European United Left has issued a press release indicating their support for the anti-ACTA protests tomorrow. Thanks for the support!
